This brew poured with a one finger, thick off white head that shockingly dissipated really quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear amber color with very light carbonation. The body was a clear amber color with very light carbonation. The nose on this brew was strong and absolutely lovely, marked with strong grapefruit and a bit of booze. The taste wasn’t quite as nice. The strong grapefruit that was in the nose didn’t come through as much in the taste. There was a definite bitterness to it, but was quickly followed up by a metallic flavor and some malt that really wasn’t in balance with the brew. The body was on the medium side and carbonation was very low. The finish was long and I just couldn’t get the nasty metallic taste out of my mouth. I have to say, given the nose, this beer was a big disappointment. I could go on and on listing the other brews of this style that were better. I wouldn’t have this again.
